If you’re at the “Ancient Musical Instruments” sections, you’d want to stop by the large chimes which are mostly made from bronze. The chimes are designed in different sizes for musicians to play each musical note correctly. When the chimes hit the pitch, a beautiful note is played for the audience to listen to. According to ancient Chinese literature, chimes were first created in Zhou Dynasty and became increasingly popular during the Spring and Autumn Period.

By incorporating computer integrated control technology, each chime in the exhibit is connected to an electronic keyboard for visitors to play the chimes. You can press the keys on the keyboard and create your own melody.
